    I'm trying to install psyBNC, but when I tar -zxvf <file name> it starts listing all the files but they have an X right in front of the file name.

    Code:
    x psyBNC/readme
    x psyBNC/makefile
    x psyBNC/todo


    What does it mean when it has those x's, because after I make and make install it still won't run.

    And, tar(1) for an explanation of what the 'x' means.
